Using The Leap Motion For Gestural Music Control With Geco (Tech Overview)

This video captures a tech overview by Geert Bevin of how the Leap Motion controller works and how it can be applied to music.

The discussion is from GeekOut 2013, so the emphasis is on the technology, rather than performance. Bevin notes:

I also demonstrate my Geco MIDI gesture controller application for Leap and a real stage with proper lighting. Personally I was surprised at how well it worked in that environment, even though the Leap was running in ‘robustness’ mode to compensation for the bright lights.

Here is an in depth look at Geco by Bevin:

The Leap Motion will be available on July 22nd for $79.99 and Geco for an initial price of $9.99.

  1. Wow! Good times.
    Been waiting for this kind of sensor since I saw a STEIM demo of an ultrasound full-body motion detector in early 90’s.
    Steim chose ultrasound due to stage lighting interference, camera prices and processing req’s.
    Camera tech and computing has moved forward since, ultrasound sensors are still expensive.
